Announcement: The Societal Function of Investment Asset Classes: Implications for Responsible Investment

We at Socially Responsible Investing would like to invite everyone to an SRI special event: The Societal Function of Investment Asset Classes: Implications for Responsible Investment.

If you will not be able to attend SRI in the Rockies in early October, we highly suggest attending this.


Press release below:

October 4, 2012
The Initiative for Responsible Investment of the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Management at Harvard University invites all interested parties to attend a conference presenting eight academic papers on the relationship between the societal function of investment asset classes and the theory and practice of responsible investment.

These papers address the ways in which asset classes manifest themselves in the marketplace through investment vehicles, transactions techniques, and regulations aimed at preventing abuse and enhancing socially desirable outcomes, whilst answering the questions of what normative values-specific asset classes have come to embody through regulation, case law, or custom.

Event will feature Keynote Speaker, Professor Amar Bhidé of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

To RSVP, please contact Annie Olszewski at annie_olszewski@hks.harvard.edu or by phone at 617.496.2213 as soon as possible due to limited seating. There is no registration fee for this conference.
